Catching online imposters can be a grueling challenge, but when you have your best buddy by your side, it makes the job a whole lot easier. “Catfish” duo Nev Schulman and Max Joseph have traveled near and far to uncover countless mysterious cyber schemes, and in the interview clip below, the Internet detectives both admit that if they weren’t such good friends, it would make the tasks at hand much more of a chore.
“We spend every day, for months at a time, together, so it’s super important that we enjoy hanging out, ’cause otherwise that would be torture,” Nev says.
“You learn to co-exist with someone,” Max adds. “You know, I give Nev all the space he needs in the car. I know he always needs to drive, he needs to have his hands on the wheel,” he explains, with a smile. True friends let each other hunt down catfish and drive.
The guys know each other so well, at this point they can practically read each other’s minds — or, at least finish each other’s sentences. Watch them demonstrate their sixth senses, and make sure to catch “Catfish” on Wednesdays at 10/9c!
